Newsletter Professionals Meetup series

This year, ONA will be hosting a series of participatory idea swaps for newsletter professionals.  

These events are designed for newsletter editors, producers, product leaders and anyone thinking of starting a newsletter product. If you’re looking for inspiration, or want to improve an existing newsletter, these meetups are for you. 

Each event is formatted so that participants can meet with others working on newsletter strategy and share ideas in a series of fast-paced breakout discussions. Bring some suggestions and leave with a bunch of new ideas and new connections. 

The series consists of the following sessions:
